Happy New Year 2016!

December 31, 2015

IIt will be over soon, 2015 that is.  I could not believe it that another year is about to close and a new just beginning.  I have been totally blessed in 2015.  Two memorable moments that stood out: The March trip to Jerusalem, where I ran a half-marathon),  and then to Rome where I saw the Pope.  Also there was the Alaska cruise last September which I totally enjoyed.  I go back.

The other half are those moments you wish to forget.  Life will not be complete without the other half.  It allows you to savor life and count your blessing.  November brought news that cancer had invaded my bones cause me grief and pain.  I have not been writing lately because I had to undergo radiation treatment for my left hip and cyberknife (it is not a dish or about cyber hacks) robotic surgery for my ribs and spine.  That’s done, so now I have to go back to chemo to welcome 2016.  Never ends.

All these moments are part of me.  There are times when I am in pain it can be a real character builder and then I see my wife, who diligently takes care of me, also friends and family praying for me which gives me confidence to continue.

Where I am not is hard and yet with all the hardships and pain I look at the good side of my predicament.

2016 is here with new opportunities to give thanks.  I had a good birthday and Christmas.  Our tree is still up devoid of presents but the memories linger.  My wife wants to take down the tree but it something I would like to savor for a little while longer.  The next chance is 350+ days away.  Gulp!

I am currently medicated for my rib pain.  No going out except for trips to doctor.  Enjoy time with family and Ethan.

Enjoy 2016.  Take care.

Cheers.
